Trailing Verbena II

versuperbenaroyalesilversdust (298x300)Verbena x ‘SUPERBENA Royale Silverdust’ – A Proven Winners selection with a semi-trailing habit that cascades over the edge of planters and hanging baskets, but also works well in the bed foregrounds. It blooms earlier than most Verbena with umbels of silvery-blue flowers from spring right through to frost. Self-cleaning. Grows 6-10″ high by 18-24″ wide. Annual.

verlanaitwisterred (300x299)Verbena x ‘LANAI Twister Red’ – A Fleuroselect award winner in the bedding plant category, this unique Verbena has 2″ wide tricolor blooms of white, pink and cherry red. ‘LANAI Twister Red’ is resistant to powdery mildew and has a mounded or trailing growth habit. It is best grown in full sun and works well in containers. Grows 10-16″ high by 20-24″ wide. Annual.

verlanaipurplestar (293x300)Verbena x ‘LANAI Purple Star’ – Another Proven Winners selection with striking clustered blooms of purple flowers with a starry white inset that begin flowering in late spring and continue onto frost. This is a great summer flower to attract butterflies to your garden and it works well in combination planters as an accent plant. Grows 4-10″ high by 12-18″ wide. Annual.

verestrellapeach (300x291)Verbena x ‘Estrella Peach’ – A compact Verbena with dense clusters of soft pink to peach umbels borne late into the fall, or from May to October in coastal BC.  These are nicely contrasted by the semi-trailing dark green foliage. ‘Estrella Peach’ prefers a part to full sun exposure and has been bred to be mildew resistant. Grows 6″ high by 12-18″ wide. Annual.

verrococcopink (300x294)Verbena x ‘Rococo Double Pink’ – What makes this Verbena a little different are the individual double blooms that are clustered into beautiful soft pink umbels. It looks striking in combination with Heliotrope or purple petunias in a mixed planter. ‘Rococo Double Pink’ also works well in hanging baskets where it will cascade slightly. Grows 9-11″ high by 12″ wide. Annual
